Internet Explorer Add-In

We have some software that had an add-in for Internet Explorer.  When the add-in is enabled and someone with local administrator privileges is logged in IE opens OK.

If the person logged on does not have local administrator rights and the add-in is enabled then Internet Explorer crashes and just comes up the message in the attached screenshot.

Unfortuantely we do not want the users to have local administrator rights.

We've setup a Software Restriction GPOs to allow and made sure the add-on is in the list of add-on management.

Which add-in is it? It seems more like a bug in the add-in

The software is called SANAKO Study 1200

As mentioned above Internet Explorer opens successfully if logged in with an account with local administrator privileges.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You could try this patch:
http://www.sanako.com/Support/SANAKO_Study_1200/Downloads/SANAKO_Study_v._4.0_Correction_Patch_1.iw3
Otherwise try to contact Sanako about it... Just to be sure there isn't a gpo problem install it on a standalone system and run as non-admin

Does this addon connect to the internet and some server or anything like that?

I am not familiar with this addon but looking at their support site (http://www.sanako.com/Support/SANAKO_Study_1200.iw3) for clues, the first I found was this - maybe you can apply something similar, set it up to run as local admin. Probably not great but maybe their s/w only works with admin privileges. Might be worth talking to their support also?
